Car\012 and start it up and try to push the gas pedal and it doesn't move. \012Perhaps it comes free with a bit of coaxing, or force, but, over time, \012this problem is certain to get worse.Or, far more frightening, you're on the freeway and push the pedal to pass a slow moving truck. When you take your foot off the pedal it doesn't come back up and your car goes speeding down the highway.
Having\012 a sticking gas pedal can be a very dangerous situation and you \012shouldn't drive your car if you're experiencing these kinds of problems.\012 However, it may be an easy fix once you figure out why it is sticking. \012The gas pedal to throttle connection is actually quite simple. The pedal\012 acts as a lever that moves the throttle able in and out. The \012throttle cable pushes a small lever that opens and closes the throttle. \012Any problems with the gas pedal is certain to be in one of these three \012parts.
The first step to diagnose the cause of a sticking gas \012pedal is to remove the breather so you can get to the carburetor or the \012throttle body on a fuel injected vehicle.\012 Once the breather is removed you will be able to access the cable \012linkages. Disconnect the cable from the throttle. You can now move the \012throttle manually to see if the problem is there or if it is in the \012cable or the pedal.
If the throttle moves freely the issue is most\012 likely somewhere else. If the throttle is the location of the problem \012you will want to clean that. Depending on whether you have a carbureted \012or a fuel injected vehicle you will want to make sure you get the \012appropriate spray cleaner from your parts dealer.\012 Fuel injector cleaner won't get all of the stuff that might be causing \012problems on a carburetor but carburetor cleaner will leave residues that\012 can damage a fuel
